Postal workers across America will collect food donations for the , the nation’s largest, single-day food drive operated by the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) and the U.S. Postal Service.
Letter carriers in San Diego County are asking residents to support the food drive by placing a bag of nonperishable food items by their mailboxes before their mail is delivered on Saturday, May 12.
Residents can also drop off food donations at their local post offices.
The Food Bank is requesting its most-needed food items:
- canned tuna
- canned meats
- canned stews
- canned fruits and vegetables
- canned soups
- rice and cereal
Letter carriers will collect the bags of food from mailboxes at residential homes and participating post offices, and deliver them back to the Food Bank to be distributed to the community to help those at risk of hunger.
